Too early to tell. I like to see the collection as a whole but so far it all seems promising.

At least there is a slight Edge solo...

And he's on fire!

I'm really loving this song, it's my favourite so far. Especially how the band took the lyrics to heart and got out of their own way when playing it, this is the most loose I've heard them play on a studio track for a while, the song flows so well and doesn't sound like it's had a dozen producers and two dozen mixes. It's a summer breeze!

And it reminds me so much of The Cure for some odd reason.

My fear is that we are hearing the songs which will be used to showcase the album & they are 3 star songs at best.
Not exactly WOWY-Still-Streets as we got on The Joshua Tree.
Or The Fly-Mysterious Ways-One.

We got 3 star tracks for another 3 star album.

Not really...

We didn't get RTSS, Bullet, Mothers, OTH as singles or previews of them before the JT.
Likewise, we didn't get Ultraviolet, Acrobat, Horses, Love Is Blindness to showcase AB.

We got Boots off No Line and there were far better songs on there than that, same with The Miracle so, I'm not understanding your point here

Personally I prefer U2 in 'serious' darker mode. If this album is a flop its probably going to be because of Ryan Tedder. So far Little Things is the best track.

The references to JT and AB are getting tiresome. We can't expect a rabbit to be pulled out of a hat. Expectations need to be realistic. We will end up with an ok album, with something for everyone.

I'm sort of surprised that nobody has mentioned the Fleetwood Mac vibe to the song.  All the way down to the "way..." at the end of the chorus.  Makes sense, as I seem to remember Adam Clayton saying something about Fleetwood Mac in an interview a few months ago.

Yep.

I find it bizarre if I'm honest. As I said earlier, this is the sound they've been recording for the last 17 years so, I'm not sure why people are expecting another AB. I'm sure if Streets came out now, this place would pan it.

"Unimaginative bass lines"
"Drums pattern is weak"
"Oh great, yet more delay on The Edge's guitar"

As I said before, Achtung Baby would have been slaughtered if this place existed back in 1991

I think it’s hard to comment on the album so early. More of a “promising” or “concerning” stage. The band has moved on to a whole new world of marketing so it’s hard to say the prognosis.  I can say that as with most bands that take the LP approach to albums as opposed to a few singles and filler

IMHO....
The songs seem to vibe well. The keys fit B mans current voice well, and he’s not straining. I’m excited.

Sounds more like a mellow beautiful day than go your own way. I’d say.

Nah.
Melody is different, Key is different and the lyrics are slightly different
